Backflow occurs when the average direction of the flow of water reverses for reasons like cross-connection and more. In other words, water flows back into the pipes, affecting your main and portable water supply. And this can be a severe safety hazard!
Without a backflow preventer, it can cause overflow and damage to your home and commercial or industry activity. And backflow can also lead to leaks and corrosion of your pipes. But the biggest problem isn’t to your home or business — it’s to your health when it contaminates the main water supply system.
When the water flow reverses back to your home, it can often include contaminants such as toxic chemicals from grease traps and more, even human waste. Thus, you and your family are exposed to health risks with the potentially polluted drinking water supply and contaminated fluids.
Here at Gold Coast Plumbing Company, we don’t want any back pressure or siphonage and want your water to flow only in the right direction. That is why we offer to test backflow prevention devices and Gold Coast plumbing services, including:
Our backflow plumbers and licensed plumbing contractor will ensure backflow prevention devices in your property, approved by the local government, are correctly set up to keep the drinking water supply safe, clean and free from contaminants. We’ll make sure your backflow prevention device must be registered. And you can always contact us to install backflow prevention devices or have them inspected or tested annually. Maintaining backflow prevention devices is of utmost importance. As a property owner, have the device inspected once a year, especially if you have swimming pools, to avoid the risk of contamination. Maintenance and testing Gold Coast of devices should never be procrastinated or forgotten.
To know about the backflow prevention device testing annual fee, contact us.
Properties are assessed as low, medium or high hazard risk to see the need for backflow prevention devices.
If your property is assessed to be medium or high hazard risk, a backflow prevention device must be installed.

From very initial contact this company was a pleasure to deal with. I've had bad experiences, so tend to be wary, but these guys were great. Job was done quick, price was fair and person who came was really professional. I don't normally leave reviews, but these guys deserved it. Won't bother using anyone else ever again. Thanks for an easy experience.
As a real estate agent I am forever dealing with tradespeople and we all know at times they can be great and others not so great. Jake was on time, very professional and extremely helpful answering all my questions. He did a fantastic job and attended to all other items I needed attended to.
Jamie was very professional and helpful. Fixed my Blocked drain. Dug up and replaced the pipe that was blocked by a 4 meter tree root. Great value for the quality work done. I will use them again for sure if I have plumbing issues. Highly recommended!
Cannot fault the service provided by Gold Coast Plumbing. From constant communication from Stephanie and the hard work carried out by Andrew. I am extremely happy with the outcome and would highly recommend them to anyone.
